Cracker Barrel has done an about-face with its “Duck Dynasty” products, reports EW.com’s Inside TV. The restaurant chain on Friday pulled items related to the A&E show as a measure to avoid offending patrons after a controversy erupted over anti-gay comments made by cast member Phil Robertson to GQ magazine.
But fans of the show expressed outrage over the move by Cracker Barrel, and blasted the company for its decision. By Sunday, Cracker Barrel had reversed its position.
“You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. Today, we are putting all our ‘Duck Dynasty’ products back in our stores. And, we apologize for offending you,” the company said on its Facebook page.
